Good-quality, sharp knives are a kitchen essential — but washing them by hand can be a dangerous job. This knife cleaner lets you get a firm grip on even the sharpest of knives and gets out every single gritty stain and food crust while keeping your fingers protected. Just run the knife between the bristles of this brush, and it'll clean both sides at once. It can also be hooked right over the edge of the sink for storage.

A personal favorite, the Powerstone Pumice Stone is a must if you constantly deal with hard water toilet stains. Equipped with a vented case for easy drying, simply scrub your toilet bowl, rinse off the pumice stone, and store it in the case!

In case you didn't already know, you should be cleaning your dryer vent regularly, and doing so goes beyond just wiping the lint-catching screen clean. This handy lint brush set features two wire brushes that are complete with lush bristles and a flexible design meant to reach deep into the slim crevice at the front of your dryer that houses most of the lint.

Dusting is another must — and this reusable duster makes getting to even the tallest spots in your home a breeze. With a bendable head and a telescopic handle that extends up to 55 feet, it's also super easy to maintain, thanks to its washable dusting pad.

What we love about this spot remover is that it’s odorless and can be used around children and pets. Non-flammable and water-based, the ingredients are safe to use around the house, since the specialized, non-harmful formula quickly separates the stain from the material in order to lift it out. Best of all? It's only $7.
